Harold Hill pupils perform classic panto

TALENTED college students performed a classic panto tale last week.

The pupils from Drapers’ Academy in Settle Road, Harold Hill brought the story of Babes In The Wood to life at a special performance to their fellow pupils, parents and staff on Thursday January 27.

Full of fun and suspense the panto saw the good guys, Robin Hood and his Merry Men, outwit the the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham, who plots to inherit the “Babes” fortune by abandoning them in the woods.

They were then rescued by Maid Marian and Lady Jane. With hapless villians Smash & Grab adding to the comedy, we see Robin & his Merry Men face various dangers before overcoming the nasty Sheriff.

Accompanied by the Drapers’ Academy Band, the story was also full of plenty of bangs and crashes.

The show was performed by the students who boasted dazzling costumes, superb set and plenty of drama and was directed by their drama teacher Mrs Lee.

The panto show was originally due to take place in December but had to be cancelled because of the heavy snowfall.
